Stop Windows Media Player 11 from keeping display on?
I want to play music on my computer while working on my homework, while using the least power possible, so I set power options to turn the display off after 1 minute, and applied changes. I noticed if my Windows Media Player music is paused, the display will turn off as it should, but if music is playing, it will stay on. How do I keep WMP from keeping the display on? (I understand that the purpose of this is so your screen won't turn off in the middle of a movie, but I'd like to change the settings temporarily).
Also, and this is a somewhat unrelated question and I don't care as much if I get it answered, but does anyone know how to apply the same setting in VLC Media so it won't keep the display on?
I apologize for not putting this in a more specific category, but it appears to fit in more than one so I wasn't sure which to pick. If it should be moved, let me know.
I have Windows 7 64-bit SP1
and Windows Media Player 12.0.7601.17514

Initially it is a little bit contradiction about your media player's version, but I am suggesting you an workaround , which will work as per your need .
Open media player .... then organize > Options > Player > Allow Screen Saver During Playback
Now adjust Screensaver settings and Power Plan Settings at your will ..... you may turn off the display after one minute .
Right Click on the desktop > Personalize > Screensaver > Change Power Settings > you will be in the power options window, I hope balanced (recommended) is checked . Click on change power settings , click turn off the display, set it to one minute, and save the changes.
